Dinoroar all the way!!

I don't have much time now a days with 2 small children and a busy home life, so once again I have created a card within half an hour for a party my son went to today. I really need to sit down for half a day and create a whole lot of cards for these last minute moments.

This time I was inspired by Paula Dobsons wonderful card creations with her Sponging, masking techniques and her Sepia Silhouette card. I tried it with the stamp set Dinoroar (which I love) and started trying to make the sponging look like hills, but after a while got too excited with this technique and realised it looked like a mix of clouds and hills.

I found by sponging Lucky Limeade with Island Indigo it created this fantastic green that changed to various colors as I kept applying in different areas.

I then stamped the Dinoroar images (RRP $45.95 Clear or $57.95 wood mounted) directly on the card stock with Staz On, then onto a sheet of Confetti White card stock, water colored then cut them out, and lay them on with Dimensionals to give the 3-D effect.

Wedding cards

I had two cards to make today for the same wedding, the first I had time to create and then was given  half an hour to created the second (someone forgot to organise themselves better lol). The funny thing is I prefer the half hour rush job one better then the one I created in advance...

The first card was a little spin on the average wedding card, this Idea was given to my by a friend who lent me the "On The Line" stamp set, which unfortunately is a retired item. Why you say did I post it... because it looks cute!!

The Second card is the one I created with only half an hour to do it in version and because I don' have any wedding stamps (as yet) I created a simple yet I think elegant look...

The Third card I have is using the current stamp set "Dinoroar" RRP $45.95 clear and $57.95 Wood Mounted. This is the first time I've used this set and now I'm hocked loving every minute it's so much fun to create dinosaurs especially with two sons. I chose a slightly different sentiment " Heard from the Heart" RRP $37.95 Clear and $46.95 Wood to the one in the set and this was because it was for my teenage class...
